Day 1 of the Lyrical Challenge!

I am so excited to have been nominated by Just Me at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com for the Lyric challenge because I do have a true love for music! It is so wonderful to have been nominated for a challenge by such an amazing person and I just want to thank you once again for this! For anyone that has not visited Just Me’s site, please check out, I think you will enjoy it!!

You know there is always rules to everything in life and I have broken some rules for challenges, but I am going to follow the rules for this challenge! I know y’all are shocked! Here are the rules for this fun challenge!!

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics, one at a time for three days
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day

The song/lyrics I would love to share with y’all  is “Your Guardian Angel” by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. This song has a lot of meaning to me because it was the song the band played after my husband proposed to me on stage! ❤Yes, I did just say my husband proposed to me on stage with one of our favorite bands! Ronnie Winter is the singer and has a ❤heart of gold! We had drove to Charleston, SC for my birthday almost 8 years ago and were so excited The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was playing a show there. After the show we ended up hanging out with the band, which we had done previously. Anyways, my husband told Ronnie he was going to propose to me that weekend and Ronnie had the genius idea for us to come to their show the following day in Columbia, SC. There is a lot more to this incredible story, but this was the basic! I hope you enjoy this song and please if you enjoy great music check more songs out by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, ALL of their songs are great!!

“Your Guardian Angel”- The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

When I see your smile
Tears run down my face
I can’t replace
Now that I’m strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold
And it breaks through my soul and I know
I’ll find deep inside me
I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Now that I’m strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold
And it breaks through my soul and I know
I’ll find deep inside me
I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

It’s ok
It’s ok
Seasons are changing and waves are crashing and
Stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I’ll be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
‘Cause you’re my
You’re mine
My true love
My whole heart
Please don’t throw that away
‘Cause I’m here for you
Please don’t walk away and
Please tell me you’ll stay
Yeah
Waohohaoh
Stay
Woaohoh
Waohohoh
Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I’ll be ok
Though my skies are turning grey (grey)

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you send me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

    • Oh my goodness it really was amazing! I remember being in such shock I do not remember saying the word “yes”! I already heard back from Erin Winter because she reads my posts as well, she really is just as wonderful as the guys in the band! I am so glad you enjoyed this. I hope you are feeling well and enjoying your Sunday!

      • There were WAY too many people in the crowd! I do remember saying I didn’t want to go on stage, but my husband and a guy from the band walked me up there! My husband said Ronnie wanted to say “Happy Birthday”. because my birthday was that Friday. When Ronnie handed the microphone to my husband everyone in the crowd knew what was happening and I was just in SHOCK!!!

      • I am pretty sure I forgot how to breath! I never thought my husband would do something that over the top! I did wait 7 years for the proposal! I am pretty sure every woman in the audience fell in love with my husband and every man hated him! I swear I will never forget this day. He proposed the day after my birthday which is Sept 30th. So he proposed Oct 1 and then we got married the following year on Oct 1! I have so many fond memories!!

      • I never wanted to pressure him into getting married since I was pretty sure marriage was the last thing on his mind. He was one of those young men that just wanted to have fun. I do think I was the only girl that never pressured a man into marriage like most of my friends, I think I deserved the over the top proposal!!

      • I do pretty well at ignoring rude people! It takes a lot to get under my skin. Yesterday when I went to the grocery store, I parked in the handicap parking because this terrible heat bothers me too much. This was the first time in a few years someone had the nerve to make a very ignorant comment to me about it. This man who was probably in his later 40’s came up to my window and said ” You do not looked disabled and I do not think you should be parking in this spot.” I was so shocked and hurt but I did say “You do not know sh*t about what I live with! It is the ignorant people like you that should never reproduce!” I rolled my window up and pulled away. He was so close my side mirror almost hit him. But I did not cry about it I was just so angry that someone would be that mean!!!

      • So sorry that happened. Yeah! I have a handicap decal, but I’m always afraid someone that ignorant will tell me something. It’s tough because I do look ‘normal’ to the naked eye. But I’m not well, physically. It’s these unseen, invisible illnesses that some people just won’t understand.

      • It was pretty heartbreaking, but I try to not allow people like this to bother me much. I know I look like a “normal” 36 year old woman, but the way I feel is anything but normal! I told my husband about it when I got home and said I should not have said anything, but my response was pretty good. These invisible illnesses we have to live with are painful and it can be upsetting when people pass judgement on us. The truth is at the end of the day, those people do not matter at all! I did mean what I said to him people like him should never have children because the children will probably be just like him! I believe people do not care to understand what others go through in life, which is pretty sad! I always try to understand others the best that I can and offer kindness to all, well besides the man at the grocery store I kind of wish my mirror did hit him!

      • Maybe someone, somewhere has it recorded! And maybe loaded it up on YouTube for all to see 🤷🏽‍♀️ Hey! AND kuddos to your husband for thinking of such a special way to ask you such an important question! 😊👏🏽

      • We have looked but if anyone recorded it they did not upload it to YouTube. It is crazy he planned to propose in a beautiful garden area in Charleston. I was shocked that Ronnie offered this to him, but actually not really, Ronnie is a good person and he wanted our engagement to be extremely amazing. We had bonded with this band in Charlotte! I feel like everything with the band and the proposal was just meant to be!

    • Thank you so much! I have 2 days left of this challenge and already have tomorrows ready. Quick question, is this something you would like to do? I like to make sure before I nominate people because many people do not like challenges.

      • Hi Alyssa
        My life has been crazy lately — sorry I am just now replying!! I think your challenge sounds fun but only nominate ME if you think my posting would be of interest to others. If not now- perhaps after I gain more experience with this new hobby!

      • I completely understand! Life does get busy and I do think you posting would be interesting to others! However, with your life being a little crazy, only do this if you want to. I do not ever want to add stress on anyone when I know we all have enough to deal with. There is absolutely NO pressure, I promise!
